From filling soldâ€"out clubs across the nation, to appearing weekly as a regular on Chelsea Lately, Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings at a Las Vegas coffee house. His infectious, explosive energy onstage, insightful jokes, and family-inspired humor crosses all boundaries. In 2005, Jo hit the â€œopportunity of a lifetimeâ€ with a performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He became one of a select few ever to receive a standing ovation. Since then, he has appeared several times throughout the years. In 2007, Variety magazine named Jo Koy one of the â€œ10 Comics to Watch!â€ A single father, Jo Koy was inspired by his son and began working on his first Comedy Central special â€œDonâ€™t Make Him Angry,â€ which aired in January 2009. His muchâ€" anticipated second Comedy Central special â€œLights Outâ€ aired in October 2012, and is now available on DVD. Jo has appeared on various VH1 I Love series, as well as The Joy Behar Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly, and Jamie Foxx: Laffapalooza. He is a regular headlining comedian at the world famous Improv, tours the college circuit nationwide, and performs in comedy clubs both in the U.S., and internationally. A firm believer in service and giving back to the community, Jo is currently working with The Lupus Foundation bringing awareness to this cause.
